“Diversity works for Mississippi,” said event chairman Wesley Wells. “We want to honor some of those corporations that practice diversity and inclusion. Mississippi has come a long way regarding diversity. Even though we still have a way to go, many companies are doing what it takes, and they should be celebrated.”
Joining in the celebration will be renowned speaker Stedman Graham. Graham is the CEO of S. Graham & Associates, a management and marketing consultant company. He has authored 11 books, including two New York Times bestsellers.
“We are very fortunate to have someone of Mr. Graham’s status to help us celebrate this event,” Wells said. “He is a big name, but more importantly, he’s very knowledgeable in regard to leadership and diversity. I’m sure he’ll deliver a great message.”
